We put our kayaks in and had great bird/wildlife watching! We saw herons, osprey, egrets, turtles, etc. Awesome, quiet, not crowded! We were lucky to have great weather too!

We visited Grayton Beach State Park while we were staying in nearby Watercolors. It is just a very short drive from Watercolors and Seaside but the difference is big. The beach at Watercolors is nice, but crowded and lined with hundreds of cabana chairs. In contrast to this, Grayton was pristine and sparsely populated. Grayton has a $5 fee per... More

Stayed here for 11 days combining work with play. The campgrounds are nice. I stayed in the older part of the campground which is more wooded and shady than the new part. The new part has concrete slabs and sewer hook-up though, so depends on which you would prefer. Nice little bicycle ride to the beach. Back out on the... More

Very nice campground with a beautiful beach. Unfortunately the hazardous marine life flag was out our entire stay so we stayed out of the water, The campsites were nice, secluded, shaded and large. The walk to the bath house was a bit long and creepy with a very small trail that we did spot a snake on. The town was... More

Grayton Beach is a great beach. It is not crowded. The sand is soft and white. Our grandkids loved using boogy boards in the surf. They, also, enjoyed using paddle boards further out in the ocean. We saw dolphins from the beach, but our paddleboarders had them come up next to them. We hiked on a trail through the perserve... More
